The Tertiary Preparation Program is an online workshop run as two 2-hour sessions over two days. It is available to all postgraduate and undergraduate coursework students in the faculties of:

  • Science (SCI)
  • Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology (EAIT)
  • Medicine (Med)
  • Health and Behavioural Sciences (HABS)

While the program is targeted at commencing students, continuing students who wish to refine and develop their writing and learning skills would benefit from participating.

Studying and writing in science and engineering presents specific requirements and challenges. Consequently, in Session 1 the program considers how to study effectively in jargon heavy and quantitative courses. The program then looks at short answer exam question responses in these disciplines, and explores the features of strong answers. In Session 2, the program will explore features of effective writing in these disciplines. While a main focus will be on the standard lab report genre, features common to other report genres and how tables and figures can be incorporated effectively in writing and presentations will also be considered.

Session 2 Details - Writing
Writing effective lab reports, and other science and engineering report genres. Incorporating tables and figures effectively in your writing & presentations
